Forge Cottage has character and charm aplenty.


WITH THE ORIGINAL thatched cottage dating back 250 years and a modern extension to the side, Forge Cottage perfectly strikes the balance between old and new. 

It’s located on 0.3 acres of grounds, with ample parking to the front and a private south-facing lawn to the rear, complete with an orchard and patio area.

Despite its humble beginnings, Forge Cottage has been carefully maintained and extended to create a charming and alluring home. 


The entrance porch leads straight into the kitchen, which has been recently refitted with new units and appliances, as well as a walk-in pantry. There’s a large centre island in here with an integrated hob, while a solid fuel stove is sure to be appreciated on cold winter mornings. 


Off the kitchen is the open-plan dining area and living room, with attractive laminate flooring throughout. The living room is particularly bright, with high ceilings, a picture window and a door to the rear garden. A new cream enamel solid fuel stove with a feature Inglenook fireplace adds a cosy touch. 


The main sitting room, which is accessed from here, is an inviting and airy space. It features vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, a feature window, solid fuel stove and filed flooring, while French doors open to the garden.   


There are two bedrooms on the ground floor – one on either side of the house – with an en suite bathroom from each. Both bedrooms feature exposed beams and timber-panelled walls, adding to the country cottage feel.

Moving to the first floor, there’s a cosy reading area in the landing and a double bedroom on either side, with timber flooring throughout.


A picture-perfect property in every sense, Forge Cottage comes to the market in turn-key condition, ready for its new owners to enjoy without fuss. Plus, both Wexford town and New Ross are less than a 20 minute drive away, meaning you’ll never be far from what you need.

Forge Cottage, Tottenhamgreen, Taghmon, Co Wexford is on the market for €269,000 through Keogh & Associates via
